1. @JoeBiden's comment about how #Russia should be concerned about the #F16s, is spot-on and consistent with my view that, when #Ukraine controls its skies the Russia forces will forced to withdraw. I report on the #Syrian war to defeat #ISIS. With US air power, light militia
2. forces were able to defeat a force of over 70,000 crazed ISIS terrorists. #SDF are brave, disciplined and willing to fight but until they had US air support they were unable to gain traction and had their backs against the wall in #Kobane.
3. I closely observed the way they were able to advance and that informs me on how the battle in Ukraine will change. First, the trench war will be over. Any Russian trench complex will become an easy target for massive US JDAMS that Russian forces won't survive. When Ukraine

The American Jewish Congress released a statement on May 8, 2023 on Bashar Al Assad rejoining the Arab League. This is a good time to recall why this is not a good idea after #Assad attended an Arab Summit in #SaudiArabia over the weekend. Read this #thread⬇️/1

The #AmericanJewishCongress is alarmed that efforts are underway to rehabilitate #BasharAssad. Before any normalization, Assad needs to talk to the opposition, eliminate #Iran presence in #Syria, and initiate a political transition in accordance with UNSCR 2254. /2
Sharing our concerns about rehabilitating #BasharAlAssad is more than half of Syria’s population displaced by #Assad’s actions over the past decade, says @JackRosenNYC, President of #AmericanJewishCongress. /3

Thread 🧵

As we continue to discuss stories of "heroic rescue" of foreign nationals, I think this is a perfect time to examine the Q? of *who* gets to be a 'foreign national' worthy of rescue.

We've already established citizens of Sudanese origin = not it.

And it's not Ethiopian and Eritrean refugees and residents, because no one has even *mentioned* them since the beginning of this conflict.

Among the most vulnerable groups, traumatized and displaced by war twice-over. But it is as if they don't even exist.

And it's not #Syrian refugees & residents, either.

In my friend's neighborhood is a Syrian bakery that has not closed since the beginning of this crisis.

One of the staff told him "None of us have stopped working. We've been through this before. We've been through worse."

1. Why did Gulf kingdoms embrace Iran? When the #GulfArab states saw what happened in Iran over one #Kurdish woman who stood up to became the #Mideast version of Rosa Parks, they all panicked. Remember, the US lists as terrorists a group whose ideology seeks #genderequality.
2. That continued listing over an ideology we support is something @POTUS @VP and @SecBlinken need to explain. But in the interim, we are seeing the #Arab word suddenly embracing #Assad, a blood soaked chemical weapon-using, sociopathic dictator. Why?
3. Because he's the one they have tapped to eliminate the #Syrian #Kurds. And all the #misogynists cheer him as their standard bearer. And once the #SDF is gone and the #women once again relegated to second-class rights, they can get back to business

Since Russian funded terrorists from #Hezbollah are killing Jews in #Israel today and both Russia and #Palestine cheer, it’s time to revisit this special antisemitic brotherhood. 🧵

So I supported Palestine on human rights argument. Among my friends much support also for 🇵🇸
1. Because we believed that this generation should not be guilty for crimes of its people in past. And what of these crimes? #Palestine and it’s supporters will tell you that all of this violence is because Israel stole land almost 80 years ago. Land that has been in dispute
2. Among three religions for eons by way. But what they leave out is that Palestinian territory was home of both Jews and Muslims during WWII. It is these Muslims who sided with Nazi Germany to eradicate, genocide Palestinian Jews. ImageImage
